Mauricio Pochettino issues warning to Manchester United and Chelsea

Mauricio Pochettino issues warning to Manchester United and Chelsea

Harry Kane bagged four goals to take pole position in the Premier League Golden Boot race - he began the night two behind Everton's Romelu Lukaku and ended it two in front, on 26 - with Heung-min Son scoring the other two in a dominant performance.

Foreshadowing their imminent goal spree, Tottenham started with a swagger and almost took the lead when Kane's pass picked out Son, only for Chilwell to deny him with a last-ditch block.

Already certain of finishing second behind champions Chelsea, Spurs played as if the title race depended on the outcome of their visit to Leicester, who suffered a first home defeat after five straight wins.

"We're young but we're getting more experience year in, year out". Still a real favourite among Spurs supporters, King was on the end of the most effusive set of cheers from the stands after the Londoners played their last game at White Hart Lane on Sunday. "I hope that he can win".

For the second season running Spurs have been in the title picture, but the likes of Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Kyle Walker are among several of the club's top stars to have been linked with big-money moves away. We are so, so calm about our key players.

That inspiration was left down to the club's academy product, Harry Kane, who struck four goals during the match. Lloris failed to clear his lines after racing out to challenge Vardy - who looked to have strayed offside in the build-up - and when Wilfred Ndidi scuffed a shot towards Chilwell, the full-back showed great composure to steady himself before slotting into the net. We are building a very exciting project and there is no reason for players like Harry to leave.

When the second goal went in the hosts really struggled to get any momentum going to get a goal back before half-time which needed to change in the second half if they wanted to keep Craig Shakespeare's unbeaten home record alive. "It's not related to last season", Pochettino said. So I think this is fantastic. Our attitude, our internal motivation was good. We were talking a lot about last season when we finished so badly.
